Superb portrait Grant!
The B&W processing is spot on, and very clever use of DoF....love the way you blurred the background inside and the reflections of the outside too!
It's all about those eyes....focus is 'purrfect' :giggle:.... mesmerising!
Fantastic image, excellent work Grant!(y)
Thanks Gareth, it was quite tricky to get focus actually through double glazing, with such a lot of reflection! Fortunately the talent held the pose for a few seconds ;)

That's a cool shot Grant. Love the detail in the cat's face, especially the eyes. Nicely done

Waiting
A really good portrait of your cat. I like that the eyes aren't looking at the camera and being in black and white the eyes really standout.

Waiting is very good I really like the composition of it and it’s really draws you in the eyes are great and suits b&w

Rough is a very good take and I think it works very well with the oof greenhouse in the background.

Marvellous!
Fits the theme well, and also works as a juxtaposition....lovely rough textures on the log....smooth bokeh in the background....like it!!
The colours are super too, and you've composed it so well, with the ivy creating a natural frame.
Awesomeness factor: all the way up to eleven!(y)
Thanks so much for the feedback!

Week 08 - Object
For this weeks theme, I immediately thought product photography... so I thought I would go for a "travel" feel, with my trusty Fujifilm X100F taking centre stage as my "object" of choice! Not something I usually do, but quite enjoyed collecting a few pieces from around the house, to pull the theme together. Hope it works?

Shot with my Nikon D750, and Nifty Fifty.

Hi Grant,

Rough - Lovely shot. Great use of the composition and DoF having that background shot like that, contrasting with the sharp focus on the branch.

Object - It does work well, I think the globe in the background makes an excellent finishing touch and the X100 series cameras are handsome looking things aren't they. Love it. :clap:
